"Lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil [or, the evil one]."



"Lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil [or, the evil one]."
Luke 11:4

What we are taught to seek or shun in prayer, we should equally pursue or avoid in action.
 Very earnestly, therefore, should we avoid temptation, seeking to walk so guardedly in the path of obedience, that we may never tempt the devil to tempt us. 

We are not to enter the thicket in search of the lion. 
Dearly might we pay for such presumption. 
This lion may cross our path or leap upon us from the thicket, but we have nothing to do with hunting him. 

He that meeteth with him, even though he winneth the day, will find it a stern struggle. 
Let the Christian pray that he may be spared the encounter. 

Our Saviour, who had experience of what temptation meant, thus earnestly admonished his disciples--
"Pray that ye enter not into temptation."

But let us do as we will, we shall be tempted; hence the prayer "deliver us from evil." 
God had one Son without sin; but he has no son without temptation. 

The natural man is born to trouble as the sparks fly upwards, and the Christian man is born to temptation just as certainly. We must be always on our watch against Satan, because, like a thief, he gives no intimation of his approach. 

Believers who have had experience of the ways of Satan, know that there are certain seasons when he will most probably make an attack, just as at certain seasons bleak winds may be expected; thus the Christian is put on a double guard by fear of danger, and the danger is averted by preparing to meet it. 

Prevention is better than cure: it is better to be so well armed that the devil will not attack you, than to endure the perils of the fight, even though you come off a conqueror. 

Pray this evening first that you may not be tempted, and next that if temptation be permitted, you may be delivered from the evil one.

If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, 
you can be accepted into his kingdom.
 I invite you to let him to make of you what He always wanted.

"PRAYER" 

 God Almighty, I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, 

who died for me to make me free of sin, 

I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free, 

I confess that He is the son of God. 

I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand 

your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, not only to live 

on this earth, but to be expectant of my life in heaven. 

In the precious name of Jesus I ask.  

Amen..

not in its fashion and manner, but in the truth which it contains.
